    Hi Everyone,
    October is here and this month I’m hosting the JOURNALING CHALLENGE: What brings you joy? We have to all agree life has been a bit hectic the past few months. Its been hard to stay positive and unaffected. Its at times like these when its really important to remind ourselves of what brings joy in our lives and celebrate what truly makes us happy. For me its my little family. Its witnessing my husband and son together and recognising that the love of a father is a beautiful thing.

    CHALLENGE CRITERIA:
    • Create a project and journal in 50 words or more a reminder of what truly brings you joy.
    Here’s my page and journaling.

    Seeing you with Tige is one of my life’s true blessings. I have learn’t that the love
    of a father is a really beautiful thing and I am forever eternally grateful that Tige
    has a daddy like you. You are so fun, you are firm but incredibly supportive & tender.
    You are your sons guiding light and my hero!

    As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to The Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the OCTOBER Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I can’t wait to read what makes you truly happy and joyful!

    journaling has 60 words, badly translated in my gallery...but the idea of what brings me joy is traveling, visiting new places in good company!

    Journaling:
    Jane, friendship with you has bought me so much joy. We are kindred spirits! We balance each other out, so different in personality but we work so well together, your steady and my crazy. We have been together through thick and thin, good times and bad, but I can honestly say every day we have been friends has been a joyful adventure. This friendship is a forever one and I can see the years stretching ahead filled with our fabulous, joyful adventure. (82 wds)

    This may not be the type of joy you expected but I truly love this visible reminder of two women whom I have loved when I see it in my kitchen every day. 74 words.
